When Pollyanna (Mary Pickford) is orphaned, she is sent to live with her crotchety Aunt Polly (Katherine Griffith).
Pollyanna discovers that many of the people in her aunt's New England home town are as ill-tempered as her aunt.
But Pollyanna's incurable optimism - exemplified by her "glad game," in which she looks for the bright side of every situation - bring a change to the staid old community.

Disregard trolls - this film is good and definitely worth your time. I am telling this not just as a Pickford fan, I am being impartial. This is actually one of the films that made me a fan of her. All of her "little girl" films are great - no wonder Pickford is remembered primarily for them today even though she played many other roles during her long career. I can only warn that this particular one is a little sugary, corny; Mary herself didn't like it and wasn't eager to make this feature. I think that the best of her Little girl movies is "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" - it's more witty and not that corny. Give it all a try, anyway!
